Park bookings

Bookings only apply to the park booking site you choose in the park and to the use of any facilities in that booking site such as a rotunda or power (if available). You cannot book barbecues, shelters (other than rotundas marked) or playgrounds for your specific use, though your group is free to share these facilities with other park visitors. Power points may have different phases (i.e. operate on different voltages), so it is advisable to check your electronic equipment's compatibility before your event. No vehicle access.

In some parks, as well as the designated site/s, there may be some alternative bookable areas of the park. Please submit an application and you will be contacted regarding the suitability of the park for the event, availability and fees.
